Hello, I have recently ordered http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131568 and
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817153042
to go with an EVGA 8800 gtx (I don't plan to go SLI for a good while). Will it work alright with this motherboard and P.S.? I'm stuck with an Athlon FX-53 for the moment and is why I went with 939 socket until I get a dual-core.:wonder: thanks for any input...oh and do I plug in both of the power connectors on the card?

The 8800 GTX requires:
A 450W PCI Express-compliant system power supply with a combined 12V current rating of 30A or more*


That PSU says it has a combined total of 36A for the 12V. So ya it should work. Not enough for two GTX's. Enough for one.

Yes you have to plug in both the power connectors.

Mmm.. why did you order 939 board? Get an Intel board with Conroe! A slightly overclocked E6300 runs faster than AMD FX60 and cost much less ....

Sorry, I didn't read your message carefully and you explained the reason ... but I still think it is worth to get a Conroe.
